A QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response code) is a specific matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) that is readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and camera telephones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded may be text, URL, or other data.
Common in Japan, where it was created by Toyota subsidiary Denso-Wave in 1994, the QR code is one of the most popular types of two-dimensional barcodes. The QR code was designed to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed.
The technology has seen frequent use in Japan, the Netherlands, and South Korea, while the rest of the world has been slower in the adoption of QR codes.

Basic idea is convert to current page url to QR Code as an image. People can use mobile phone with QRCode reader to read the link.
1. Create QR Code generator handler
Create new class inherited from IHttpHandler
2. Configure the handler in web.config
Add new handler to <system.webServer> (IIS7) or <system.web> for IIS 6
3. Using handler as image url
Open PageFooter.acx, add new <img> tag to display QR Code
For Commerce Sample:
Open ProductDisplayModule.ascx (Templates/ClickTalk/Units/Placeable)
